    i swapped a b16 into an 89 crx 'dx' & it had a bit of a flat spot from 2-4000, & it wasnt so bad. now the idle is getting rough & its almost a misfire type of problem.... at least its starting to act more like that.....also, instead of cutting out from 2-4, its cutting out from idle-4000. its not throwin any codes either, so im hoping its just a simple tuning issue. i need to find someone who really knows these motors well. if anyone knows how to diagnose it, or knows someone who would know, i would appreciate it.

    as far as cap, rotor, wires, etc..... those are good. the igniter might very well be it. how much did you have to give for your igniter?
